Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,

The Haverhill High School 2017-2018 Program of Studies has been created for our
students to use as they plan their course of study to meet state and local graduation
requirements. The planning process will encourage them to set goals and to develop
their own unique individual student success plans that will assist them in successfully
achieving those goals. Students will have choices as they review the variety of courses
offered at HHS that highlight the diversity of opportunities and will assist them to
develop the skills required to become successful in post-secondary plans. I am pleased to
announce that our course selection has been expanded to give even more choice and
opportunity to our diverse population in the FY18 school year.

Haverhill High School students are encouraged to take full advantage of the myriad of
opportunities and to challenge themselves to reach new academic heights. The variety
of rigorous course offerings will encourage students to stretch themselves academically
beyond their comfort zone. Our highly qualified professional educators are always
available to assist students and parents as they navigate the various pathways and
opportunities that Haverhill High offers the students of Haverhill.

We look forward to a positive and productive 2017-2018 school year! This is an exciting
time to be a Haverhill High Hillie!

Sincerely,

Beth Kitsos
Principal

FRESHMAN ACADEMY
Overarching Goal: Develop a tiered support system that ensures opportunity, access and equity for ALL.

The Freshman Academy has been established to build a greater sense of school community and to foster a successful transition
from middle school to high school. This supports the long-term goals for student achievement, and creates a school culture in which
adults and peers support each student. This team structure builds a strong school community that encourages meaningful
relationships, increases attendance rates, decreases behavior incidents, teaches organizational skills necessary to be successful, and
fosters high student achievement. All first-time freshmen, except for those enrolled in the Classical Academy and the NAF IT
Academy, will be in the Freshman Academy. Specific objectives of the Freshman Academy include:

          Ensuring the academic success of all students using a comprehensive, research-based approach.
          Creating a safe and orderly learning environment that intentionally addresses the social, emotional, and academic needs
          of ninth grade students.
          Maintaining on-going communication with parents to establish a positive working relationship.
          Providing teachers with consistent use of planning time for collaboration on all aspects of curriculum design and
          instruction to support the achievement of all students.

                                       SPECIAL EDUCATION
The Special Education Department provides specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of students with disabilities.
Students eligible for Special Education services have Individualized Educational Programs (IEP) that can include both Special
Education and Regular Education courses. The primary goal of the department is to support and encourage maximum student
involvement in regular education courses to the extent appropriate.
The Special Education Department and the Haverhill High School community are committed to meeting the educational and
emotional needs of students with learning challenges in the least restrictive environment. Each Haverhill High School student
with special needs is placed in accordance with the TEAM evaluation process. This process involves exploring and documenting
all regular education alternatives prior to referral to Special Education.
Participation in the following Special Education courses is predicated upon recommendations made via the TEAM process and
the receipt of a signed Individualized Educational Program accepting the course(s).

                                THE CLASSICAL ACADEMY

The Classical Academy is an admissions exam program within Haverhill High School that engages academically promising
students in a challenging college preparatory curriculum intended to broaden and deepen their knowledge, skills, understandings,
and civic commitment. The Classical Academy creates scholars who are well-rounded, cultured, self-disciplined, critical thinkers
who can compete at the highest academic levels.

The Classical Academy is a contemporary classical education with emphasis in Latin and the humanities. Students take an
entrance exam and based on their scores, teacher recommendations and their middle school transcripts are accepted in to the
program. Many students, who would have attended private schools, have opted to choose Haverhill High for the sole purpose of
participating in this program.

Students have a prescribed four-year curriculum. All core courses are honors or Advanced Placement levels. Students are
required to take a minimum of three (3) Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Beginning with the Class of 2020, students will be
required to take a minimum of four (4) Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Classical Academy students must take and pass
three years of Latin. There are courses offered which are unique to the program.

In their freshman year, students take a course called A Classical Perspective, which focuses on classical themes within literature
and studio art. This interdisciplinary, project-based course incorporates and connects curricula from the Humanities, World
Languages and Fine Arts. In addition to their core subjects, History, English, Mathematics, Science and Latin and their Classical

     9|Page
Haverhill high school - program of studies 2017-2018 Haverhill High School 137 Monument Street Haverhill, MA 01832
Perspective courses, students take Wellness and a World Language. Students are required to maintain no less than a “C” average
in any subject; failure to do so in two or more, results in a probationary status. After the committee reviews students’ quarterly
grades, anyone who fails to meet this standard at the time of final grades is excluded from the program.

In their sophomore year, students are required to take AP European History, English, Mathematics, Science and Wellness. In
addition, they will take either: a) 2nd World Language (Honors Level) b) Another AP course (with teacher recommendation) or
c) 1 credit worth of Fine Arts electives and/or electives from another academy in which the student is enrolled.

In their junior year, students take AP US History and AP English, as well as, creative writing or public speaking; Mathematics
and Science. Students may elect one and a half courses and are encouraged to take a second language including modern
languages (French, Spanish, Italian and German) or Ancient Greek. They may also take an additional mathematics or science or
advanced placement course. Juniors and seniors are encouraged to do a community service project of their choosing.

Senior year, students take senior seminar and produce an eighty hour project about a topic of their choice, culminating in a
presentation before a panel of expert judges. All other courses are elective. Students are encouraged to take advanced placement
or honors level courses.

The goal is to offer these students a challenging unique opportunity with enhanced extracurricular activities within a public high
school. Our teachers are encouraged to bring in guest speakers and lecturers and arrange field trips, which are tied to the
curriculum. In the past, students have had lectures by a juvenile district court judge, a Buddhist monk and a performance by a
professional storyteller/poet. Students have visited the Museum of Fine Arts, the John F. Kennedy Library, where they witnessed
a political forum, and attended performances of To Kill a Mockingbird and Julius Caesar, just to mention a few.

Our objective is to offer students a rigorous program and to provide them with a foundational experience, for successful college
studies. We create critical thinkers, problem-solvers and creative young adults who to will meet the challenges in all their future
endeavors and to become a responsible citizen.

HUMANITIES ACADEMY
The humanities are the cornerstone of education and include such disciplines as English, history, classical studies, social sciences, art,
philosophy and language. They teach students how to read and write and ways of teaching others to live fully and creatively in society.
Additionally, they teach students how to use their imaginations, find beauty in experience, and reflect critically on that experience. They
support all academic disciplines by clarifying social policy, developments in technology, economic ideals, and public and private values.
Study of the humanities provides students with historical perspective and cultural awareness which gives them the ability to express
themselves clearly and accurately, to critically evaluate, analyze and interpret ideas and actions, and the courage to make choices on shared
values and priorities. The Humanities Academy will prepare students for careers in the fields of Humanities, Education and Political
Science.

STEM ACADEMY
  The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Academy at Haverhill High School provides students with the framework,
  courses, and support to realize their potential for success in STEM careers. Within the STEM Academy, students have the opportunity to
  explore STEM related fields, develop 21st Century skills, and get a head start on their post-secondary education. By freshman year, many
  students have already developed an interest in STEM topics and wish to focus their high school studies in this field. STEM-related careers
  are expected to grow significantly in the coming years, providing tremendous opportunities for people with a strong STEM background.

  Students in the STEM Academy choose from among six different academic pathways: Health & Life Sciences; Engineering; Physical
  Sciences; Earth and Environmental Sciences; Information Technology and Applied Mathematics. The choice of a pathway and the array
  of electives available allow students to explore areas of personal interest and experience real-world applications of mathematics and science
  principles.

  The STEM Academy offers students opportunities to explore, build awareness and immerse themselves into STEM careers through field
  trips, guest speakers, project-based learning activities and internships. Students study a range of STEM topics by building an individualized
  schedule consisting of required and elective courses (see below). The STEM Academy is available to all students who are interested in
  science, technology, engineering, or mathematics

  In addition to the General High School Sequence of Courses listed on page 7, students will take the following courses, depending on their
  area of interest. All STEM pathways require the successful completion of a minimum of six (6) courses.

  Students are encouraged to plan their course of study in collaboration with Guidance. Some electives have pre-requisites that must be met
  prior to enrollment.

DUAL ENROLLMENT
Beginning August 2017, Haverhill High School and Northern Essex Community College have partnered to replace the Early College
Program with enhanced dual enrollment offerings for students in Junior and Senior year. The courses offered will represent expanded
subject areas to create seamless pathways of transfer credits through the Mass Transfer Block. Courses offered through dual enrollment
are college-level courses for students who are looking for increased academic challenges while earning both high school and college
credit. All dual enrollment courses will be held at the NECC campus and students will be enrolled into preexisting classes. Students
must take an Accuplacer exam and meet established benchmark scores, which are set by NECC, to be eligible for participation.

There are two pathways to Dual Enrollment. Students can either choose a prescribed set of two courses per semester beginning their
junior year at a cost of $700/year or can opt to take individual courses within the Mass Transfer Block. Dual Enrollment courses run
from 12:30-1:45pm. Students must provide their own transportation to the college and home.
